Givers and Takers

Moonrise at Barnegat Light

Trading favors
a tricky deal
is my favor worth
more than yours?

I don’t lend money
but rather give
then if you don’t repay
I will not be angry.

In an ideal world
we help each other
without expectation
yet this is not our nature
for we are takers
and rarely givers
and then mostly
with the expectation
of receiving, hopefully
even more.
